Business Needs & Challenges

Key business needs and challenges moving over to Magento 2

Rittenhouse Needlepoint team wanted to move to Magento 2 Open Source to take advantage of its improved performance and better customer experience.

Not only this, they were experiencing a decrease in their sales in Magento 1.

They had many more products to be added to the store and hence wanted the Magento 2 application to be launched soon.

Existing system had issues with irregular payment and missing transactions

Impact on performance and searching the right products when their catalog size was growing

Solution

We have developed the B2B and B2C Ecommerce Portal using Magento 2.3.4 Open edition, there are many 3rd party modules and custom development was done to accomplish the project goal. Here are some of the key modules.

Layered navigation was implemented to allow users to filter products with multiple shopping options and built a custom module for search in the category page so that users can search based on different attribute sets.
Customized advanced search to display the category dropdown filter attribute.
Authorize.net payment method was configured to fix the payment issues.
A mega-menu was implemented to organize their extensive 75K+ product catalog.
Leveraging Magneto’s robust features, we have created their four different stores in one admin for the ease of use.
We have resolved the performance issues during the process and optimized their product DB structure.

Benefits

With the new mega menu and vast catalog size, the customers were able to find the products at a fast pace.

The layered navigation was a boost to users as it was easy and efficient to search their vast catalog and find the desired product quickly.

Checkout was much faster compared to the old site and all these led to an increase in conversion rate

With the robust catalog, performance was improved which enhanced the sales volume.

There was a drastic increase in the sales by 84% in just three months post migration.

The page loading speed had a significant improvement; the speed increased by 25% post launch of M2.
